There are multiple ways to mentor and work with our clients . Please use the volunteer application on the Volunteer Page to apply.

1) EMOTIONAL TRAUMA INTERCEPTION

Help people adapt to and manage their personal, social service and justice system involved life during this time of trial through reconciliation. They need help organizing and scheduling an expanded array of evaluations, doctor’s appointments, court assignments, family meetings, safe housing, and more.

Use specialized emotional first aid tools to do an early emotional impact intervention to stop the acceleration of deep, compound trauma caused by accelerating feelings of guilt, blame, shame, grief, fear often followed by misdirected anger. Fully adaptive, our ETIP tools can be learned and used any time – at the scene, at the point of arrest, with families, or in conjunction with immediate release on personal recognizance, with an Electronic Home Monitoring program, during work release, or in a clean and sober housing facility.

2) CASE MANAGERS

3) COURT NAVIGATORS

Use a checklist of tools and scheduling methods to help people successfully navigate the court processes and the complex relationships with the justice system so they can successfully meet and fulfill the obligations of the unfamiliar testing, evaluations and extra activities that suddenly show up in a person’s life.

4) RESTORATIVE JUSTICE MENTORS & COACHING

Work with individuals and family to adjust to the deep life changes that come with incarceration trauma, conflict resolution issues, victim impact issues, family and employment disruption. They may need safe housing, relationships training, community living skills, adaptive social context help from peers who have ‘been there’. Our Self-Empowerment Services mentoring program starts with a series of sessions called Negative Self Talk Awareness, Anger Understanding, Learned Behavior, Conscious Communication, Relationships and Commitments, Parenting, Decision-Making, Societal Conditioning. Helping people reintegrate into the work force, their family and society.

5) JOB RESKILLING AND ENTERPRISE COACHING

After an arrest the entire world of employment turns upside down, and entire families find themselves displaced, because referral and support networks often disappear, employment opportunities evaporate, costs send the family into poverty, and the ability to get work, retain work, and even to do work often fails. People lose licenses, credentials and recommendations. Even if they are not convicted, the reputation is ruined and it disorients and displaces families.

After time spent inside, even more trauma is experienced, their world has moved on, technology changes, jobs market is completely different. They need help adjusting to having a record, how to talk about their time inside, and how to relate to the community. More, they often need to do complete work recovery and job skills replacement, so they need employment coaching. Often the only option is starting their own business, and they need help doing this too, for it is completely undiscovered territory and there is no funding for them. So they must learn to work in cooperatives, and sometimes those options are also limited.
